LibriVox recording of The Eight Strokes of the Clock, by Maurice Leblanc.

The Eight Strokes of the Clock is a collection of eight short stories by Maurice Leblanc. The stories have his most famous creation, Arsène Lupin, gentleman-thief, as main character. The eight stories, even though independent, have a leading thread: Lupin, under the name of Serge Rénine, trying to conquer the heart of a young lady, travels with her, solving eight mysteries on the way.

Subject: Another well-done story
The hero meets a lady who he decides he must win for his wife, so he throws down the challenge: can they together solve eight crimes by the eight strokes of the clock in 3 months? If so, she would marry him. She likes him, he's a dear friend, but does she want to marry him?

Oh, and those mysteries? They are interesting too.

The reader is excellent, all in all a wonderful story. Enjoy!
